Beady Eye played two Oasis songs during their Radio 1 headline show at T In The Park last night (July 13).

Playing opposite Rihanna, Liam Gallagher and co were always going to have to compete for a crowd but a decent audience turned up to watch the band play a set comprising of tracks from their debut record, new album 'BE' and two Oasis favourites.

Walking on stage with two fingers in the air, Liam Gallagher said "who are we?" as the band fired straight into 'Flick Of The Finger'. Sadly, Liam's voice sounded weak during the first couple of songs, with the singer struggling to hit his notes, but as the set went on his vocals improved.

This was especially evident on 'Second Bite Of The Apple', which saw Liam snarling his way through the recent single. However, very few Beady Eye tracks received a fevered response from the crowd. Instead, that reaction was reserved for classic Oasis anthem ' Rock 'N' Roll Star', which sent the crowd wild.

Similarly, the reaction to 'Morning Glory' was incredible and prompted Liam Gallagher to say, "you can go back to sleep now, OK?" after the song was finished. The band finished their set with 'Bring The Light' and 'Wigwam', which saw Liam Gallagher shake hands with those in the front row.

Beady Eye played:

'Flick Of The Finger'
'Face The Crowd'
'Millionaire'
'Four Letter Word'
'Soul Love'
'Second Bite Of The Apple'
'Iz Rite'
'Shine A Light'
'Rock 'N' Roll Star'
'I'm Just Saying'
'Morning Glory'
'Soon Come Tomorrow'
'The Roller'
'Start Anew'
'Bring The Light'
'Wigwam'


Meanwhile, Rihanna headlined the Main Stage as part of her 'Diamonds' world tour. Opening with 'Phresh Out The Runway', it took until 'Rude Boy', which was eight songs into the set, before her show properly kicked into gear. That was followed by 'What's My Name?' and 'Umbrella' came soon after. Rihanna concluded her hit packed set with 'Diamonds' as fireworks exploded high above the Balado site.

Before Beady Eye, Dizzee Rascal played eight new songs from his forthcoming new album 'The Fifth', which is due out on September 30, including 'Bassline Junkie' and 'Goin' Crazy' featuring Robbie Williams - who appeared via a recorded video. However, it was his older tracks such as 'Fix Up Look Sharp' and 'Dance Wiv Me' which proved to be the set highlights. Dizzee Rascal's show reached a stunning climax during set-closer 'Bonkers', as fireworks and glitter exploded from cannons situated beside the stage.

Earlier, Miles Kane played his third T In The Park in a row, performing to a packed King Tut's Wah Wah Hut tent. A huge roar went up as Kane took to the stage, opening with 'Taking Over'. "T In The Fucking Park!" he then shouted, before ripping into 'Rearrange', as thousands sang the song's guitar riff right back at the band. Kane, dressed in black, sported a huge grin throughout the duration of his show, which included call-and-response crowd favourites such as 'Kingcrawler', 'Quicksand' and recent single 'Don't Forget Who You Are'.

Elsewhere, Snoop Dogg received a lapdance from a group of scantily-clad female dancers during 'I Wanna Fuck You', while Scottish folk rockers Frightened Rabbit played a show "ten years in the waiting" on the Radio 1 stage.

T In The Park concludes today (July 14) with performances from Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Killers, Foals and Frank Ocean.
